    This is a bust i recieved from Carl Barton (housecarl), thanks mate(y) and decided to give up sculpting for a while so i could tackle this one as i liked the look of it as soon as i saw it.

    I at first was going to go with acrylics but decided to paint the eyes in acrylic and the rest of the face in oils, i wanted to reflect a cold atmophere with this one and also a fatigued look to the face, the Ardennes was a cold and hard battle for the Germans and that was my inspiration for the face. Still going to do a little more to the face once the oils have dried as they are still wet at the moment and once dried i will have a better idea how they effect has worked out.
    This is my 4th face painted in oils.

    All comments and critique welcomed

    You've captured the cold look really well, cool!
    The pinkish haze on the cheeks is exactly right.
    I also think the eyes a very well done.

    If you want to increase the tired look, maybe you could darken the bags below the eye a bit more (with a blueish haze)?

    Í'll be following as well!

    Cheers,
    Adrian

    Hi Steve,

    Great start mate on a great bust. I agree with Adrian's comment about adding some shadow under the eyes to make him look a bit more fatigued. You'll find that adding shadows under the eyes will also help to "frame" the eyes and make them stand out more.

    Keep up the good work mate.

    Thanks everyone for the comments and advice.

    Carl.. cant wait to start that splinter cammo, not done it in this large a scale before so looking forward to that.

    Adrian & Tony... I have added some greeny/blue tint under the eyes but i want to let the oils dry before adding any more so i know how much to add, dont want to over darken the lower eyes.
